Keeping Dog Hydrated Post-op
My shepherd mix Stella had a large lump removed from her side a couple days ago and while she's up and moving around well and wiggles her tail she's not 100% of course. She's drinking some and nibbling at food but I'm a worrier by nature so I wonder if she's drinking enough. We've all been there, when we don't feel good food and water doesn't sound good!
Should I whip up some chicken broth and hope that gets more liquid nutrition into her? Other suggestions?
She's eyeing the couch more this morning, as if she knows she's not ready to be back up there again but she'd really like to be. Poor girl. She's spoiled though, outside furniture cushions have been brought inside so that she has ample soft room to spread out on the floor. Don't forget the blankies and pillows too!
